Road Trip Lessons

IMG_1735

This morning began our open-ended road trip extravaganza.  After a sad- nay, heart-wrenching- good-bye to Daddy, I  buckled the kids in the van and immediately learned my first road trip lesson:

do NOT play Pinocchio as a distraction for children missing their Daddy.

And I quote, “Papa!  Papa!  Please come back.  I promise I’ll be good.  Don’t go!”

Um, thanks Pinocchio.  Keep an eye out for a bill to cover their counseling for psychological damage at formative ages.

Second road trip lesson learned ten miles down the road: kids prone to car-sickness will have heightened symptoms if watching a movie while driving.

Hey, live and learn (or some other cliche phrase that is supposed to add insight.)

I got this!

I got this?

I’m torn on which form of punctuation most accurately depicts how I feel about day 1 on the road.

    1. Thanks Katherine! Yeah, there’s something about big eyes and fat cheeks that are rather irresistible in little kids. And yes, I think you’ll particularly enjoy the pictures from our first stop 🙂
